Dallas a Great Convention Town -- for Nuns

Page 3 of 3

All I know is, we gave up sex, and they didn't come.

But Jones insists Dallas has got the right message for Obama times. "We're known industry-wide as a good business destination. It's looking very positive for us, because they like the city and they like all that we offer as a destination, and they also know that they're not going to get in trouble for hosting a meeting in Dallas."

So let's count it up again. Good hotels. Arts district. Reachable by airplane. No sex. If you come here you won't get in trouble.

Wow. And then even better, with the new downtown hotel, conventioneers will be able to go straight from their workshops to their rooms at night.

I see a new motto brewing.
